The revolutionary product with ‘Heat Barrier Technology’ ensures maintenance of a 5° C temperature difference indoors, no matter how hot or cold the external temperature is, thus saving energy
Ambuja Cements Ltd, one of India’s leading cement manufacturers, has launched an innovative green building offering for Individual Home Builders (IHBs) in Punjab – Ambuja Plus Cool Walls’. The revolutionary product with ‘Heat Barrier Technology’ ensures maintenance of a 5° C temperature difference indoors, no matter how hot or cold the external temperature is, thus saving energy.
The product was launched in Gujarat recently and has already received excellent response from IHBs. Whilst the B2B construction segment has evolved with efficient building solutions like concrete blocks and fly ash bricks, the IHB segment (comprising 70% of construction demand annually) still depends on brick masonry during the home building process. However, this has an environmental impact, as it uses fertile soil. Also, it gives rise to efflorescence on clay brick walls especially in the Punjab region.
Some facts about Ambuja Plus Cool Walls:
- A complete solution to build a house that can withstand temperature variations and keep the interiors of a home at a comfortable temperature
- Traditionally, clay brick walls need to be cured, whereas, Ambuja Plus Cool Walls does not require curing, thereby saving huge quantities of water during the construction process; and also reduces the hassles faced by the consumer.
- Ambuja Plus Cool Walls is made of heat-resistant concrete blocks and Blockol – Block Jointing Mortar – for joining these blocks.
- Ambuja Plus Cool Walls are stronger than walls made from any other material.
